A great summer camp can feel like a second home, a place where you are accepted and loved without judgment. Camp Walt Whitman is proud to offer a welcoming environment that helps campers and their parents feel at ease. In fact, every member of the family loves the staff, amenities, and activities of this New England summer camp.
One look at the rave reviews on Facebook reveals what makes this kids’ summer camp so special. Here, it’s all about encouraging personal growth while building lasting connections. As former camper Tori F. explains, the atmosphere is what kept her coming back for nearly a decade:
Camp Walt Whitman holds a huge place in my heart. It has been my second home for nine years. Camp Walt Whitman has made me the person I am today, and I am so beyond grateful for all that I learned from camp. I will always treasure all of the friendships and memories I have from my many years there. It will always be my home.
This home-away-from-home feeling not only motivates campers to return each summer, but it also inspires some to work as counselors. Such was the case for Jeremy M.:
I spent four summers here as a kid and one summer as a counselor, and I cannot express how much this place changed my life for the better. Camp Walt Whitman gave me a great appreciation for the outdoors, and I will never forget the time I had at this magical place.
Once they’re adults, some alumni of this New England summer camp can’t wait to send their children. Jocelyn M. was eager to pass down her history with Camp Walt Whitman to her kids:
Camp Walt Whitman is one of the best possible places to spend the summer. I have a long history there as both a camper and a counselor, and I am thrilled to now be a camp parent. One of the best parts of sending my kid to camp this summer is that I know everything that goes on behind the scenes, so I know that every situation and decision is handled with great care and judgment. I'm so excited for my child to experience the independence and joy that comes with being a camper at CWW!
